Forum: GratefulDead Subject: A suggestion on a new photo at the top of the forum

All I have is the photo w/ no information. It may be from a DP. It's from the Godchaux era. The shot is taken from above and behind the drummers, looking out towards the audience. All seven members of the band are in this shot.
From left to right we have,
Donna
Phil
Bobby
Micky
Jerry
Bill
Keith

Some markers. Weir has a leg in the air (wearing jeans) ready to come down on a note. Jerry is in the moment with that look on his face and Billy looks like he is going to destroy his kit. For some reason I think they are ending NFA.

Mark Currie has an awesome gallery of gd picks from 77 to 89 or something like that can't find his website anymore. A real shame i used to hop to it all time to see his photos.

Second the nomination.

DP3. Somehow that one shot distalls it all for me. Heck, I'd love it for my desktop. Anyone know how to get a version?

You got me searching. Ed Perlstein is the photog. He has an incredible site.

But it sure wasn't Pembroke Pines! And it sure ain't cheap. And that's why your suggestion won't fly unless he's one cool dude. :(

"This photograph of the Grateful Dead was taken at Winterland arena in San Francisco. Being a former ice skating rink, Winterland had wrap-around balconies. Shooting from the balcony behind the stage was often a great way to get a unique angle. The first row of that balcony hung right over the rear of the stage, so I was very close to the action".
